What are movies without music? Even silent films had showtunes playing in the background, and since then the modern movie soundtrack has become a staple of contemporary cinema. For films like 'Pulp Fiction' or 'Black Panther,' the music can become as memorable as the movie itself.
It's been seven years since Rihanna dropped her last album, 'Anti,' but she's finally back with a new single called 'Lift Me Up.' The heartwrenching ballad was created for the soundtrack of 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.' As the sequel premiers without the late Chadwick Boseman, star of the first 'Black Panther,' movie, the song serves as a tribute to the talented young actor who died too soon. It was co-written by Rihanna, Tems, Ludwig Göransson, and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler. "I wanted to write something that portrays a warm embrace from all the people that I’ve lost in my life,” Tems explained in a statement. “I tried to imagine what it would feel like if I could sing to them now and express how much I miss them.”
